Fan pulls "Glee"'s Darren Criss off stage during DC concert

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - “Glee” co-star Darren Criss was pulled offstage by a female fan during a tour stop in Washington, D.C., on Thursday night.

Following a performance of “Somebody to Love,” the actor who plays Warblers singer Blaine on the Fox musical dramedy, was yanked off the front of the stage by a fan before immediately jumping back up and joining the rest of the cast for their closing bow.

The singer was a good sport, tweeting after the show to the woman who pulled him from the stage, “To the lady who pulled me off the stage and into the pit tonight: if I ever see you on a stage ... keep your wits about ya. Love, Darren.”

But Criss, who will appear Sunday on Oxygen’s series premiere of “The Glee Project,” added that it was a close call, and he came dangerously close to a gate between the crowd and the stage.

“I’m lucky I didn’t hit my head on the gate in front of this lady. Seriously close call tonight ... Like, please don’t kill me. I’m nice.”
